  • If I were to use only a few words to summarize my goal for this book, as well as my teaching philosophy, that’s what I would say. Students fi rst. I believe that an eff ective textbook must be oriented to students—informing them, engaging them, and exciting them about the fi eld and helping them connect it to their worlds. When students are engaged and challenged, they understand psychology at a deep and meaningful level. Luckily, psychology is a science that is inherently interesting to students.

Al- though the profession of policing dates back to the early 1800s, it wasn’t until 1908 that it began developing standards and training for police recruits. h e fi rst such professional training program was established by August Vollmer in Berkeley, California.

  • Psychology is the Science of Mental Life, both of its phenomena and of their conditions. The phenomena are such things as we call feelings, desires, cognitions, reasonings, decisions, and the like; and, superficially considered, their variety and complexity is such as to leave a chaotic impression on the observer.

  • At most universities, introductory psychology is one of the most popular courses. Th is refl ects the interest which most people have in understanding human behaviour – both their own, and that of others. While an introductory course should acknowledge this interest, it must also be an introduction to psychology as a discipline, providing a coherent understanding of the nature of psychology. In meeting these goals, the choice of a textbook is oft en crucial.

  • As you begin your study of psychology, you will find that it is different from any of your other classes. This is because psychology is connected to both the social sciences, such as history or economics, and the natural sciences, such as biology and chemistry. As a social science, psychology explores the influences of society on individual behavior and group relationships. As a natural science, psychology looks for biological explanations for human behavior.

Organizational psychologists also seek to use these insights to enhance the effectiveness of organizations—a goal that is potentially beneficial to all. This book is designed to provide students with a thorough overview of both the science and the practice of organizational psychology.

  • would like to introduce this encyclopedia of psychology by focusing on both twenty-first century and more distant historical contexts, while additionally highlighting the scope and depth of the work of psychologists, their students, and their supporters.

  • Some years ago in one of those all too rare moments of reflection it occurred to me that I was only three lifetimes away from the very beginnings of modern psychology. It is generally agreed, as we will see, that what we call "scientific psychology" began with Wundt's laboratory at Leipzig around 1879. Similarly, applied psychology is seen to have begun with the work of Francis Galton in England at about the same time. A short time later James McKeen Cattell, one of Wundfs first American students received his Ph.D. at Leipzig and went on to work briefly with Galton.

  • In the opinion of Dorothea Brandt, author of the famous Becoming a Writer (1981), all writing is autobiographical in one way or another. Hence this book may be seen to represent not only something about its topic, person-centred counselling psychology, but also something about me, as its author. Certainly, the focus of the book evolved from the disparate strands of my own career, firstly as an academic psychologist, then, as a person-centred counsellor, and now as a counselling psychologist.
